I have read a lot about that the 920/w3520 gives nearly the same result when overclocking to high values? I would say go for it, the 975 is still a very capable chip and for 20 dollars thats a steal. From what i can see the 975 is clocked a bit higher than the Xeon. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedShould I upgrade anything or just spend money on a new machine?
